Here are some recommended running and walking routes
from the top travel guide book for US runners and walkers
Fun on Foot in America's Cities:

Fisherman's Wharf to Sausalito
This route is a classic!  Run or walk along the Bay from Fisherman's Wharf
to the Golden Gate Bridge.  Cross that unforgettable bridge, fog or no fog.  
Continue on the trail to lovely Sausalito, to wind down at an excellent eating
and drinking establishment.  Catch the ferry back to where you started.  
Spectacular views of the San Francisco Bay and downtown, with excellent
running or walking conditions.

Fisherman's Wharf to Ocean Beach
A scenic and athletic running trail.  Spectacular views of the San Francisco
Bay, scenic overlooks of the rugged Pacific Ocean shore, classy residential
areas, famous Lands End, and sandy Ocean Beach.  There is an excellent
wind-down establishment, and Golden Gate Park nearby if you want to go
further.  There is convenient public transit back to downtown San Francisco.

Golden Gate Park
San Francisco's answer to New York's Central Park has as many
attractions and as much diversity as the east-coast version.  Running and
walking trails traverse a botanic garden and skirt several attractive lakes,
two waterfalls, a Japanese Tea Garden, a Conservatory of Flowers, a field
of bison, several museums, and two impressive windmills. End in the
famous Haight-Ashbury district for a wind-down snack and drink.
